Seems to work well. :) In fact it even resolves the problem we currently
have with the built-in Apple client, that hangs itself after +/- 50 min
and we have to restart the VPN connection completely.

Our staff uses client certificates though, do you plan to
implement that configuration too in the future ?

kind regards,
